A survey of the architectural and engineering breakthroughs that made possible the construction of the world's largest free-standing dome, the Kyushu Oil Dome in Oita, Japan. This immense structure, which stands the equivalent of 20-storeys high, owes its existence to nearly 2,000 years of innovation, and draws on the ingenuity of the craftsmen who built everything from Rome's ancient Pantheon to the famous Astrodome in Texas.
